King's College Student Union

17digital-media-web-design1"Since working with Seventeen Digital Media on the redesign of our website we’ve seen our number of visits increase by 8%, visitors are spending on average 3 minutes longer on the site and the average number of page views per visit has doubled. All signs that not only do we have a site that looks great, but it’s structured well too. Seventeen Digital Media worked hard with us in the planning stages to get a structure that was right and put our student members needs at the heart of the experience. We were delighted to be able to have a site that uses responsive design, something we had on our ‘wish list’ but didn’t expect to see become a reality within a project that had very tight deadlines and a relatively restrictive budget."Steph Upton, Marketing and Communications Manager, KCLSU

KCLSU came to us in early 2013 looking for a complete overhaul of their website. We worked in tandem with their in-house team to produce clean, bright, easy to use interface that worked across all devices; since then we have provided support for graphics and web. The process is still ongoing and we finished the last big visual update in 2017.

17digital-media-graphic-design5"As well as working with us on our website we also use the graphic design services of Seventeen Digital Media when our in-house team are too busy. The work we receive back is always on brief and we welcome the creative suggestions put forward. Seventeen Digital Media have really come to understand the student market and the tricky balance Students’ Unions often have to make between the look and tone of their charitable services versus their commercial ones. I would recommend the services of Seventeen Digital Media to any organisation, big or small."Steph Upton, Marketing and Communications Manager, KCLSU

JGB Partners

JGB Partners came to us as a start-up recruitment company in need of a complete package. Initially we worked through logos and corporate branding, refining and defining a style that summed up their 'boutique recruitment' approach, eventually settling on a purple and black colour scheme, tied in with full colour cityscape photography. This scheme was carried through on the website, business cards, stationary, and literature.

Seventeen Digital Media designed and implemented all of the online and IT systems for JGB partners. They are always there at the end of the phone to provide solutions to any query that we have. Before we employed them we didn’t know where to start in this area we now have a cutting edge website and social media system.Jim Gervaise-Brazier, JGB Partners.

JGB Partners website designWith a video specifically created for the homepage and a radical bottom menu system, the site certainly stands out from the crowd. The website build involved a complex job display and application section on the front-end and an even more extensive job management system integrated into the back-end CMS. A simple to update blog was added, as well as a full newsletter subscription and creation system. Once again, the site was built to be fully responsive, giving easy access via any form of tablet, phone or web browser. A mobile app was constructed, using all the functionality of job component directly off its home page. The set up was completed with various levels of social media integration including an auto-tweet function for the latest jobs added to the site.

Seventeen Digital Media also manage JGB Partners SEO and online marketing, providing them month on month with a sizeable stream of web traffic.

We have implemented the job management system used here on various other sites, including 111 Healthcare and PDM Recruitment

Hallmark Financial Planning

When we were contacted by Geoff from Hallmark Financial Planning, he was looking to update and future-proof his web presence, concerned by the 'Post PC' world and the need for information to be available on a plethora of devices. Hallmark were looking for a flexible solution that still complied to the stringent outlines set up by the FSA.

We are really happy with the work Seventeen Digital have done on the website, the responsive architecture works really well and is a great solution to the problem.Geoff Clamp, Hallmark Financial Planning.

hallmarkUsing an adapted version of the MooTools 'Masonry' web architecture, we created a responsive website capable of easy viewing on any devices without the need for limited 'phone only' versions of the site. The site physically rescales itself and the various components rearrange themselves on the page to fit different screen sizes dynamically. The style was kept clear and clean, classic yet totally 21st Century. A full CMS system was added to simplify updates and help keep the site up-to-date in the ever changing world of financial planning.
